Sanjay Manjrekar had a good international career for about a good 10 years before he retired. And over the last decade or so, we have regularly seen him as a commentator on our TVs.

But here’s the thing. A lot of people do not like his commentary. To put it mildly, people believe that his commentary leaves a lot to be desired. 

Okay, so those might be a bit harsh, but hey, this is a free country. 

The thing is, Manjrekar’s commentary might have actually done wonders for some other people.  


RJ Balaji would agree with that statement. Balaji who is covering the World Cup 2019 as a Tamil commentator actually went on air and said that even people from Gujarat have tuned into Star Sports Tamil when Manjrekar gets on air. 

That is not a joke. We thought it was when we went through Twitter during last night’s game but damn, this is some serious shit. 


Balaji even jokingly said that he owed his new found wealth to Manjrekar, including his watch, coat and suit.

Well, at least Sanjay Manjrekar’s commentary is working well for someone. There is always a silver lining, ain’t there?
